Vividly remember the crowd still cheering as the bands bus floored it out of town right outside the stage left fence. They cut the showshort and bolted out of there after that guy almost knocked down the drum set.

I liked that show but when I went back to listen to it a year or so ago, I was saddenned that Jerry's chops didn't hold up to my memory of the show. I guess I should have expected that for 84

Actually, the playing during those run of shows (Aug 10-16) is really very good, although the Caldwell show may be the weakest of the bunch. And then there are the shows from the second half of August through the rest of the year which may be Jerry's lowest point ever (JGB that is).

As for the After Midnight jam I've always liked 3-8-80 the best.

Like that 3-8 one also.

The 2-28-80 "After Midnight" release is very sweet. So nice to have such a clean recording out there. Love that show and listened to it on a crappy recording for years.

As we have all said so many times. Early 80 JGB is awesome - every show just seems great
